COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So schmeckt das Allgäu! Noch in den 20er-Jahren war dunkles Bier im Allgäu das meist getrunkene Bier der Region. Brilliante dunkle Kaffee-Farbe mit einem cremigen, feinporigen Schaum. Vollmundig, mit einem intensiven Malzaroma. Korbinian Dunkel ist eines der bekömmlichsten und magenfreundlichsten Biere. Grund: die milde Röstung des Braumalzes und die außergewöhnlich lange Kaltlagerung bei nur 0 °C. Nach alt-überlieferten (und gut gehüteten!) Rezepturen wird dieses Bier in unserer Familienbrauerei seit nun über 500 Jahren gebraut – und jedes Jahr wächst die Fan-Gemeinde.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
I cant read the effing commercial description, but I’ll tell you what i think it says. 330 mil bottle from Bevmo. $2.29 eh! Rich red-brown with off white head. Nose is sweet like a cola and medium fruit. A bit of vanilla and light spice. Clove? Big smooth taste fills the mouth. Sweet brown ale feel turns to lager dryness. Leftovers combination of aspirin and sweet dark fruit. Nice beer.

Grima (2035) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2011
into the glass pours a bright reddish purple beer. The foam disappears very quickly. The smell is strange sweet malty. The beginning part is very very chocolatey, coupled with some roasted malt and caramel. The aftertaste is bitter and chocolaty roasted malt. Something I would not expect from a German beer, this beer is the absolute chocolate hit. There can be no English Chocolate Stout tap tuned! I’m thrilled!

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2006
Clear red-chestnut beer with brownish, small fluffy head. Very bready, leafy nose, bit nutty; quite sweet, nearly red port-like. !!Smoked, dry tobacco/ash flavour, not sweet at all, leathery perfumed. Starts medium bodied, but with a rather empty finish. Nice! very special difference between nose and flavour, but nowhere off-putting. Txs, Stef.

pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle: Deep chestnut-amber coloured, thin but firm and stable off-white head; sweetish-caramelly, nutty nose with a faint tinge of toasted malt; moderate sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; caramelly, nutty finish, slightly sweetish with some delicate (roast) bitterness in the aftertaste. A very decent and well drinkable Dunkel !

Bottle. [Courtesy of Hildigöltur, Thanks Jacob] Small beige fizzy head that mostly diminished. Clear flat light mahogany color. Aroma of bread, grain, fruit, floral and toasted malt.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of pumpernickle (rugbrød) bread. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and pumpernickle bread (rugbrød), leading to a dry and slighlty bitter finish.

McGarnigle (535) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle. Root beer looking brew. On the light side for the style, but smooth. Malty, slight hops, roasted coffee at the end. Not unusual for the style.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Dark chestnut, creamy brown layer on top. Fairly vineous nose on chocolate, like booze-filled pralines. Milk chocolate flavor base, light orange, a hint juniper. Medium to light body. A hint roast retronasal. Decent.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 3, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle from Big Lots!. Deep ruby in color on the pour. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smells like a Tootsie Roll. Good chocolate flavors, along with a bit of maltiness. Not very roasty. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.
